An E-Board recommendation by KC6NXZ to enable  our CounterPoise to be sent in Electronic form for E-Mail distribution to those who would like to receive it this way. This method may allow us to recover some printing costs as well as mailing costs and mostly the huge effort it takes to move all of the paper around and get it to the Post Office in time.
A discussion followed of the pros and cons by several very knowledgeable members. New information was presented that Tuck, NZ6T will be taking over as Editor of the CounterPoise.
A motion was presented by Tuck, NZ6T 2nd by Bill, KD6QB that we try the electronic method for the newsletter beginning in January. Tuck said his method will be to send only a notification to the members via E-Mail at the time of the CounterPoise posting onto our WEB site.
An amendment by Steve, AD6VI 2nd by Roger, KC6TRU stated that we try this on the condition that we do a cost comparison in order to see if in fact we will save money. This study is to be brought back to the membership by mid summer of next year.
Tuck further agreed to amend his motion to do a trial period of Concurrent mailing via the post office and via the E-Mail and Revist this issue in July of 2002.
Both the Motion and the Amendments were approved by the membership.
Rough approximate cost breakdown for the Monthly newsletter quantity of about 225 to 250.
Monthly Copying Costs: ~$160.00
Monthly Postage: ~$ 60.00
Monthly breakdown for Postal Permit: $12.50
Total Monthly costs: ~$ 232.50
Please send Tuck your E-Mail Address so he can compile this listing. His Address: nz6t@arrl.org
MEMBERSHIP REPORT: Joni, KF6MPB reported that we have 262 paid members. The last WAMO issued was # 1615.

   Feb. 13th, 2002 Meeting Minutes

           Meeting Called to order at 19:04 hours by President Mike Maston, N6OPH.
          President’s Agenda:  Mike advised that voting on Bylaw changes to be held prior to remainder of meeting.
          “We have 3 ballot initiatives that need to be voted on …  we will get these out of the way first”.
          “Voting will be by paper ballot, there will be no show of hands. 2/3-majority vote is needed for passage.
          Only Paid up full club members as of this evening are permitted to vote.”  “Votes will be counted at end of
          balloting and results given immediately”
          The reason we are going over these issues again is because last month there were questions during show of
          hands as to who was a paid member and who was not. Therefore, a motion was made to do a paper ballot.”
          First By Law Change :  Article 5 para. A & B:   Currently we require the Dues be paid by Dec 31st
           “This change has to do with the way we collect our dues…proposed is to collect them year to date”.   Mike
          further explained that this means if you were to renew for 1 year in Feb, as an example, you would be up for
          renewal by the next Feb 1st.
          Opened for discussions from the floor:  Susan, KF6WXA asked how this would affect those of us already
          paid?  Same as for everyone was the answer. If paid in Jan then Renewal will be next Jan.  She asked if one
          pays in Feb would they be grand fathered?
           Mike said that person would have their renewal in Feb. there is no provision for “Grand fathering”.
              Roger, KE6PW asked about the Early Bird prize for a person who renewed in October.  Mike said if this
          change passes then there will no longer be an Early Bird Prize.    Steve clarified this question from Roger
          and the Chair answered, “ 2001 Early Birds were renewed as of JAN 2002 and that is their renewal month.”
          Marco – How will this affect the Membership Chair’s workload. Joni and Nancy have told the board and the
          membership that this change will not increase the work for them.
          Tuck told us that this change will spread the work load out more across the year.
          Rich, N6NKJ mentioned, “When asked at the board meeting both the membership Chair and the Treasurer
          said this change will assist their job.”
             John, KF6XY mentioned that in the Feb “Counterpoise it reads that this motion was defeated at the last
          meeting.”
          The Chair said he was “aware that he made a mistake about the 2/3 requirement at last meeting. It was then
          requested that we reconsider this motion due to not all present were paid-up full members. This vote tonight
          will correct that error.”
          Erich moved to call for the Vote. It was seconded by Tuck. This motion to proceed to the vote was
          approved.
          The President asked Rich, N5EV and Rich, N6NJK to hand out ballots and verify members are paid-up
          using tonight’s current roster provided by Joni.  The Voting proceeded.
             Susan, KF6WXA asked the President for the floor.  She thanked the officers and especially Mike,
          N6OPH and the present board and Tom, KC6NXZ for their professionalism in these last two meetings.
             There were discussions as to how to more easily continue the voting on the next two issues. The chair
          considering the comments of those present determined that we would use one paper ballot for both of the
          next two issues.
          Al, KA6RLX volunteered to collect the Ballots and turned them over to our counters:  KG6FBV, Cal  and
          KG6FBU, Tom
          After tallying the vote the Results were: 41 = YES ;  6 = NO  Therefore, Art 5 Para A & B changes as
          previously published here &  in Counter Poise were passed by the membership present.
              President Mike introduced  the 2nd issue. The By Law change to Article XX ,  Paragraph (G) referring
          this as “term limits”. Specifically,  “ President, Vice-Pres. Treasurer and Secretary will not be limited to 2
          consecutive terms in the same office.”
              MOTION by Tuck, 2nd by Claude, KD6CYS to make the next two votes a show of hands by virtue of the
          fact that N6NKJ & N5EV have verified all of those here who are paid members.
             The president then restated this motion for all to hear. “There is a motion on the floor that the voting for
          these next two issues be changed from a secret ballot to a ‘division of the house’ that is to say, a show of
          hands”
          Discussions:  Susan, KF6WXA mentioned that this was last month’s request by motion that we do a paper
          ballot. Can we change now to a show of hands?  Doug, KF6QXU asked about how to determine 2/3 votes by
          a hand vote?
          Gary, N6LRV said in response to Susan’s question. This is a new and separate issue than last months’
          issue because we now know who present is a paid member. Steve, AD6VI do by Laws allow a division of the
          house vote. Mike, N6OPH said there is no problem with the By Laws on this.
           Chuck, WD6APP asked that we move the non-members to a separate area of the room for the show of
          hands voting in order to avoid any appearance of impropriety. The chair then asked if there was any
          objection to the unanimous consent request
          It was then requested whom are the non-voting associates and guests.    The Secretary determined there
          was no problem in his counting of paid members.  Question Called for the proposal to use show of hands.
          Unanimously approved to change to Show of Hands.
          The chair recognized Susan, KF6WXA She said she sees a problem with not having term limits due to new
          ideas and new administration are good for the club. We need more groups involved in club not just one.
          Gary, N6LRV it appears that some members see this change as eliminating annual voting for officers.
          Abolishment of term limits does not remove the annual vote for officers.
          Rich, N6NKJ Term limits have served the club in the past. The limits are no longer good for the club.  Let’s
          eliminate them now.
          Question called for.....   Voting then proceeded on Article XX, Paragraph G.
          Results:  40 YES votes; 11 No votes.
          The president determined this was a 2/3 majority and therefore the  Art. XX para G motion passed.

          Mike, N6OPH then introduced the 3rd By-Law change:
          Article XX  Add Paragraph H:
          “In the event that no nomination is proffered for an office and no one is elected to same, the current holder
          of that office would remain in office for a maximum of 3 months.  At which time if no club member is willing
          to volunteer to hold the office in question the previous holder of that office would be appointed with a
          recommendation of the President and a majority consent of the current board of directors for the remainder
          of that term.”
          Chair entertained arguments for and against.  Rich, N6NKJ the reason this came up is we had no one to run
          for Treasurer for this year. Since we cannot do the club business without a treasurer we had to appoint from
          the board members. This By Law change will give the Board time to locate a person to fill that office or
          appoint the current holder.
          Steve, AD6VI pointed out that his change would clear up an ambiguity in the By Laws when a person in
          office is willing to serve if no one else will  but may not want to run for the office. Tuck called for the
          question, recognized by the president.  A show of hands Vote proceeded.
          RESULTS:  43 YES Votes; 3 No Votes.
          The president determined that since there is a 2/3 majority then the measure Art XX add para. H has
          passed.
          Vice President’s Report:  MARCH:
          Richard, N5EV told us that we would have a Six-meter band presentation by Joe, N6SIX and another
          member of the six shooters as well as the ARC of El Cajon at our March meeting. He said the rationale is
          that this will help give our technician members having a topic closer to their license privileges.  Richard
          announced that even though he wanted to retire after more than 20 years of service the Air force wants him
          to go to Washington D.C. and that he may have to go in July.
          APRIL will be a Town meeting here by Art Goddard, W6XD our new ARRL SW-Division Director.
          Past President:
          Tuck, NZ6T the new club call for the Amateur Radio Club of El Cajon Contesters is KG6JLY. When we get
          our Vanity call WS6F will be the replacement.
          Health and Welfare:
          On Jan 17th, 2002 our friend and board member and co-founder of the Six Shooters, Phil Goodwin W6BAS
          became a silent key. We also lost another friend Mel Morgan, WB6HKU.  Tom, KC6NXZ asked that we
          have a moment of silence for these two amateurs.

          Joe, N6SIX has set up an equipment swap table tonight and presidents suggest we try this for a few
          meetings to see how it goes.
          Mike mentioned again that we need a Chairman for the Del Mar Fair SANDARC Booth.
          SWAPMEET:
          Tom, N6JOJ states that you may walk items up to the club table for sale but you must stay with the items.
          They are not there to sell your equipment for you. Also, do not ask the Swap meet personnel at the gate to
          let you in to sell with out paying the full sellers fee.

          Manager. He is soon to have 500 Nets under his belt for the ARC of El Cajon.
          Public Service:  Rich, N6NKJ announced the SEMS/ICS Training requirement for ARES and RACES to
          get the new County I.D. Cards. The Training class is on MARCH 9th, 2002 at 9:00 AM at S.D. county

          needed to their repeater site. Erich , W6LKK also Treasurer of SANDRA told us it may take as much as $
          2000.00 for the repairs and parts. Rich, N6NKJ reminded us how valuable these downed repeaters are to
          area clubs and to A.R.E.S.   This motion was amended by Al, KA6RLX to increase to $ 500.00.  Both the
          Amendment and Motion passed by unanimous vote of the membership.
          Tom, N6JOJ mentioned he needs brochures to hand out at the Swap meet. Tom, KC6NXZ has these ready

          OLD BUSINESS:
          Mike, N6OPH performed the SECOND (2nd) reading the Proposed by Law change to Article 5 Para. A
          & B.  To
          paraphrase: the membership renewals would be change to  a ‘rolling’  year  rather than requiring all
          renewals by  DEC 31st date. Since this was a motion from the previous meeting the president asked for
          further discussions. Several members voiced their opinions. A vote was taken 29 for 19 against.
          However, John, KF6XY asked if the By-laws required a 2/3 Majority. The president consulted the bylaws
          and after further discussions the vote was invalidated for failing to achieve the required 2/3 majority of
          those present. Therefore the motion did not pass.
              The President then performed the 2nd reading of the Motion for Proposed By-law change affecting
          Article 10 Para. G.  After reading the changes, Mike stated “ Basically, this means the elimination of
          term limits for the officers.” Discussion of this motion was called for.  It was mentioned by the originator,
          Tuck that this was proposed due to our lack of volunteers for officers of the Club as in Treasurer in order
          to save the club.
          Several members brought forth their opinion both PRO and CON on this motion with much lively
          discussion.
          A motion was made by Tuck, NZ6T and seconded by Rich, N5EV to table this until next month. This was
          passed by voice vote of the membership.
          There was some discussion about who was voting and who were paid Members or not paid members.
          A motion was entertained by the President from Tuck and seconded by Steve, AD6VI to have a paper
          ballot vote on this issue of ‘term limits’ whereby paid members could be verified and ballots tallied.
          After some lengthy discussions this motion was passed by the membership.
          A motion was made by Tuck and second by Tom, N6JOJ to have interested persons place their
          opinions in writing and printed in the Club news letter.
          There were very lengthy discussions about how many Pros and Cons and who would decide the
          write-ups to be entered. How long these should be and the possible burden placed upon the editor.
          The Question was called for by Tuck, NZ6T and recognized by the President.
          The resulting vote was 14 in favor and 19 opposed.  Therefore, the Motion to have Pros and Cons of
          term limit by-law change printed in the news letter was defeated by the membership present
          A motion to Adjourn was made by Susan, KF6WXA and Seconded by Roger, KE6PW.  The motion was
          passed by and the meeting adjourned at 21:37 hrs. to the Prize table.
          Respectfully submitted by Tom Caudle, KC6NXZ, Secretary, January, 11, 2002
